In line with my change of direction thread

http://www.finescalerr.com/smf/index.php?topic=1183.0

I was playing with publisher & came up with some apple cartons, quite pleased with the result, ignore the work bench top, just picked up something  handy as a prop
but boxes need filling, which requires a packing shed
but a have a vague idea of a animated scene with roller conveyors,
but the conundrum is NEW boxes beeing filled would quite soon get wear & tear on them as they move around such an exhibit, & then not look quite right.
never mind cross that bridge when we get to it.
first is the shed. Not going to be a new build but an upgrade of a building already been used, as a store, then a workshop, and a photo background for SBS in progress

When first built in 2002 this was my first attempt at large scale (1/12th) on reflection the stonework  was more mosaic than masonry

But the over all effect was not too bad, just needs the mortar toning down & some weathering  adding

The interior having seen use for heavy engineering, will be in need of a fresh coat of paint for food handling hygene

In 1/12th scale, that must be a pretty large building!

Hi Chuck
from memory its about 30 x 22 inches.

Been having fun with publisher making apple boxes But got distracted by finding a Geest banana box in the attic.
As top cover is printed on white no probs used 160gsm card  & serndipily found an off cut of brown kraft paper, no idea what or even where it came from, but enough to get 3 A4 sheet out of, to make the bases.
I have in the past used hundreds of in real life & the real ones achieve that saggy dip in the top cover when the humidity is high  Grin  Grin

Oh & post script, that black line delineating each face of the boxes, now annoys me, & mark 2 apple & banana boxes now have them removed

Looking good!  Eliminating the line between the faces is definitely an improvement ... has a bit of a toy-like effect WITH the line, but looks quite convincing WITHOUT the line.  Bummer about the handles!  Undecided

Cheers,

Just realised those banana boxes are not complete, they should have a top & bottom sheet of very stiff brown paper with ventilation holes in, to stop the fruit falling out, piece of thin card  strip, cut, & folded into zig zag to keep the top sheet in place
